We all read reviews to help us form a picture of the accommodation and it may or may not live up to our expectations, but Mandala Desa is one of those rare places that lived up to and exceeded all of our expectations. From the on-time airport pick-up to the drop-off (with some picture stops along the way) nothing was... More

My husband and I came here 5 years ago while I was pregnant with our first child. At Mandala Desa we had a wonderful time being together and enjoying Bali, right before the joys and crazys of parenthood began. It was priceless. This year I decided to come back alone and let my husband and kids spend some quality time... More

My friend and I came to Bali to celebrate a "significant" birthday each. We wanted relaxing but with access to shopping and evenings out. Mandala Desa offers just this. Nestled about 20 min drive from Ubud, surrounded by rice fields, the setting is stunning. Our 2 bed suite was immaculately furnished with a massive balcony directly facing the fields. So... More

I have been to Bali many times over the years. Mandala Desa is without a doubt the nicest place I have ever stayed in the Ubud area. Complete relaxation and luxury in the middle of the beautiful rice fields of Sukawati. Small scale boutique resort with incredible views and sounds of nature, super friendly staff, great kitchen and a beautiful... More

If you ever want to go to Bali, enjoy the culture and meet local people, we can recommend Mandala Desa. It's a small resort in the middle of the rice fields, run by a Dutch woman, Jacinta. It's about half an hour from Ubud, the cultural capital of the island. You'll be picked up from the airport, you can get... More

Wow! What can I say, this place is amazing. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by all the staff there. They then delivered us drinks and afternoon tea - complimentary.

Romantic getaway and a ultimate experience if you want a taste of the true Balinese culture. Nestled adjacent to the rice fields, Mandala Desa will not disappoint. We stayed for just two nights, and was given a complimentary upgrade to the private villa. Firstly, the staff and management were so welcoming and obliging. The efficiency and attention to detail is... More

Spent a total of 22 days in Bali in September. Of all the places my friend and I stayed this was our favorite and provided ultimate relaxation. We were upgraded to a villa, which was so kind.

By far the best place to stay in Bali. Having travelled around Bali many times I will always return to Mandela Desa. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious but still have the full Balinese style and atmosphere that you would want to experience being in Bali. This trip we were there with family and partners and we pretty much had... More
